The Pepper Festival (Auburn, CA)

September 14, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm


There is the Gilroy Garlic Festival, Strawberry Festival, Asparagus Festival, heck, there are even an Egg Plant Festival and a Carrot Festival! So, why not a festival that celebrates the incredible variety and diversity of the pepper? From sweet peppers to mild peppers and of course the peppers with heat (and peppers with insane heat), peppers are in virtually every cuisine with recipes handed down in virtually every ethnicity around the world.

The possibilities with food at the festival are endless, represented by American, Mexican, Asian, Italian and many more cuisines. Each food vendor will have a Pepper Menu that will give options of sweet, mild or hot pepper variations. You decide how hot you want it. You can order something mild and make it WILD by creating your own heat from our Epic Condiment Bar featuring hot sauces from around the world and sliced mild to super hot peppers.

What festival would be complete without local breweries and wineries? We are all lucky that the Auburn/Greater Sacramento region is packed with incredible micro-brews and wineries who will be represented at the festival.

Pre-Sale General Admission Tickets are $16

VIP Tickets are available for $150 and include:

• Private VIP Dinner – The night before the festival (Friday, September 13). VIP Dinner includes a catered meal, beverages, live entertainment and a sponsor swag bag.

• VIP Lounge – All day access to the building next to the main stage. Includes refreshments, food, air conditioning and an outdoor patio right up against the stage to enjoy the live bands & entertainers.

• Merchandise – Each VIP ticket holder will receive a 2019 Pepper Festival t-shirt, Pepper Festival Hot Sauce and other swag to be determined.
